Winter Steelhead Fishing on the Muskegon and Grand River

Steelhead Fishing has been good for us at Getting Bit Guide Service.  The Muskegon River and Grand River have been fishing good for Steelhead when the weather permits.  We have mainly been float fishing but plug fishing has been good when we have done that as well.  6th street dam area in Grand Rapids on the Grand River should be fishing good when the water drops if you are looking to shore fish, try some jigs and waxworms.  I still have some winter dates open for January and February.

Muskegon River and Grand River Steelhead Fishing Report

Steelhead Fishing continues to be amazing for us on the Muskegon River and Grand River.  This warm weather we have been having has had good numbers of fish entering the rivers and the fish have been super charged jumping around and taking long line burning runs.  We are set up to have some great fishing throughout the winter on the Muskegon River.  We have been taking fish while float fishing, back bouncing, and plug fishing.  With the higher water last week I had a day where we shot up into Grand Rapids to the 6th street dam and fished and that was some fast and furious action.  The Muskegon River from the dam down to the lake has been fishing good.  

If you are looking for a gift idea for someone that likes to fish or likes to be outdoors I have gift certificates.  They can be used anytime throughout the year for my river trips,  Steelhead, Salmon, Smallmouth, etc., they are a great Christmas gift.  I still have a good number of January, February, March, and April dates open so help me fill them up and we can go and beat up on some fish.

Muskegon River and Grand River Steelhead Fishing Report

Steelhead fishing has been pretty good for us on the Grand River and Muskegon River.  We have been putting a decent number of Steelhead in the boat on all of our guide trips lately, it has been a good mix of darker winter fish and chrome spring run steelhead.  Float fishing with bags, beads, jigs, and rubber worms has been working well.  Plug fishing with plugs such as the new mag lip 3.0, hot n tots, and wiggle warts has been taking fish.  Bottom bouncing bait or wobble glos has caught steelhead as well.  The 6th street dam in Grand Rapids had been fishing great earlier this week but will probably be slowing down as the fish move upstream to spawn in the tributaries such as the Rogue River and others upstream of Grand Rapids.  The rivers are low, cold, and clear at the moment so look for the run to be another drawn out one this year.  We should have good fishing into mid May from what it looks like.  If you are looking to get out I still have some days in April and May to fill for fishing on the Muskegon River.  Below are a few pictures taken since my last update.

Grand River and Muskegon River Steelhead Fishing

Spring Steelheading has gotten off to a slower start than usual but we are still finding plenty of fish to play with.  The slow start should mean that we will have a later than usual run of Steelhead into our rivers.  The Grand River should fish well for the next few weeks, the Muskegon River should fish well into May again this year.  We have been catching a mix of chrome and wintered up steelhead over the past week, more chromers should be showing up daily.  We have been taking fish while float fishing, back bouncing, and plug fishing.  Guys fishing from the shores in Grand Rapids at the 6th street dam have been getting a few fish off from the wall and post office.  If you are looking to get out we should have some great fishing on our West Michigan rivers over the next month and a half and I have some open dates here and there throughout March, April, and the first part of May.  

Below are a few pictures taken this past week.

Muskegon River and Grand River Spring Steelhead Fishing

it is Mid March and Spring is here, the runs of Spring Steelhead should be showing up soon.  The Grand River is up pretty high and should be getting its first push of Spring fish soon.  They are catching a few fish at the 6th street dam in Grand Rapids but not may fresh fish yet.  The Muskegon is coming up a little and has a nice stain and hopefully some new fish will start showing up any day as well.  It sounds like a few fresh fish are sneaking into the Pere Marquette River but from the sounds of it the past couple of days have been tougher fishing up that way.  Float fishing, bottom bouncing, and plug fishing has been our productive methods lately for catching Steelhead and Brown Trout.  I still have some days left in March as well as April and May if you are looking to book a trip.  We should have some great Spring Steelheading for atleast the next 2 months so don't miss out.  Below are a few pictures taken since the last update.

Spring Steelhead

As of today 4/14/14 the Grand River, Muskegon River, Rogue River, and White River are all pretty high and dirty.  They will probably be very tough to Steelhead fish for the next week or so.  The good thing is that most of them should be fishing good as they start to drop.  Before the floods we were catching fish while float fishing and plug fishing.  The Muskegon had not received many fresh Steelhead yet so that should change with the recent rains.  Some guides were already fishing gravel to spawning fish on the Muskegon River over the past week if that is your thing.  The Grand River in Grand Rapids near the 6th street dam was giving up a mix of fresh and darker winter fish, look for a bunch of fresh fish to shoot through with the flooded waters and fill into the smaller tributaries.  The White river sounded like it was fishing good last week for Steelhead, look for the dam in Hesperia to fish well as the water starts to drop.  The Rogue river as of a few days back was just starting to see a half way decent push of fresh fish so look for that to fish well as it drops.  Steelhead fishing on the Muskegon River and other area rivers should be good late into May this year with the colder than average water temperatures.  I still have some late April and May dates available if you are looking to get out and enjoy some warmer weather Steelhead fishing.  We offer the use of Spinning, Centerpin, Fly, and Baitcasting rods and reels.

Muskegon River Steelhead Fishing

The Muskegon River has been fishing pretty good for us for Steelhead and the occasional hog brown trout.  We have mainly been float fishing but plug fishing has been taking some steelhead for us as well.  The Grand River has been pretty high and dirty for the past week.  I hear that they are getting a few fish downtown Grand Rapids at the 6th street dam.  From the sounds of it most of the fish are being lined rather than biting, if the water clears a little more that should change.  The water is still really cold on most of the rivers so the Steelhead fishing should remain good for awhile, look for rivers such as the Muskegon to have good numbers of fish through April and well into May.  If you are looking to get out on a guide trip give me a call as I still have some great dates open in April and May.  It looks like some warmer weather coming in the next 7 days so the fish should start showing up in force soon!

Muskegon River and Grand River Steelhead Fishing

Spring Steelhead fishing is officially here, if you are going by the calendar that is.  The runs of Spring Steelhead are a little behind this year due to the extreme Winter we have had, the good thing is that we had a great push of fall fish and some small trickles of fresh fish that have kept us busy lately.  Steelhead fishing over the past couple of weeks on the Muskegon River and Grand River has been good on most days but there have been a few days that we have had to work for them a little harder.  We have mainly been float fishing for Steelhead with spawn and beads. We have also had some great days that we were mainly drop back fishing plugs were we were putting double digit numbers of fish into the boat as well.  The Grand River is running pretty high right now with stained water, they are catching some winter hold overs as well as a few fresh fish up at the 6th street dam.  The Rogue River and White have opened up for the most part and have been fishing decent for mostly hold over Steelhead.  The Muskegon is running pretty low for this time of year and we have been catching mostly Fall and Winter run Steelhead with a true chrome one here and there.  The size of the fish lately has still been impressive, we have boated numerous Steelhead over the past week between that 12 and slightly over 16lb range.  I am guessing that the bigger runs of fish will be a couple of weeks behind schedule this year.  Look for April and the first half of May to have some great Steelheading.  If you are looking to try out Centerpinning we have all new Raven gear for this season.  We also offer the use of Spinning and Baitcasting reels as well.  We are offering 4, 6, and 8 hour trips for this Spring so give us a call to get out and enjoy this great resource that we have here in Michigan.

Michigan Steelhead Fishing

Steelhead Fishing on the Grand River and Muskegon River has been good for us on most days over the past couple of weeks.  We have been doing well float fishing as well as plug fishing.  If you are looking to get out I still have a couple of days open next week as well as a fair number of days still open in late March, April, and May.  I have not taken many pictures lately due to the cold weather that we were having but below are some pictures from the past few outings.

Winter and Spring Steelhead Fishing Guide Trips Muskegon River Grand River

We have had a touch of Spring this past week and it felt great to be out on the river boating a bunch of Steelhead in a little warmer weather.  Steelhead fishing has been great, there seems to be a lot of fish around in the Grand River and Muskegon River.  Float fishing with centerpins and spinning rigs has been our main producer lately but plug fishing has taken its share of fish on some days.  The rain that is forecasted for later on today could make things interesting but fishing should remain consistent when the rivers stabilize.  If you are looking to get out this February, March, April, or May for a Winter/Spring Steelheading trip now is the time to give us a call and get your date in the books before the prime days are taken.  The end of February and March should have some great fishing so if you are looking to get out before the crowds book a date then.  If you would rather wait for some warmer weather and our Spring run of fish late March, April, and May are a good time to book a Steelhead guide trip.  The fish are running large this year so don't miss out!  

Below is a small sample of the fish that we have brought to the boat over the past two days.
